A new introduction for 2020, 'Oriental Dove' has delicate flowers a vibrant shade of royal purple with the lower lips fringed in white, that glow against its fresh green foliage.  Flowering from midsummer through to autumn, it is perfect for injecting pops of exotic colour into the garden, bridging the August slump when earlier flowering perennials have faded and the autumn ones have yet to start.

Combine it with other jewel-like hues such as oranges, limes, blues and deep pinks for a zesty combination that will really make your borders sing.  Alternatively go for the classic and cool purple and white mix in a sunny planter with SYMPHYOTRICHUM 'Priory Blush' and HYLOTELEPHIUM 'Thundercloud'.  It thrives in full sun in a reasonable soil, i.e. moist but free draining.
